This week, I’m delighted to be hosting Ritu Bhathal in the Dirty Dozen “hotseat”.

The Dirty Dozen

The Dirty Dozen, featuring Annette Rochelle Aben

Welcome to the first in a new series, which I’m (slightly mischievously, and completely inaccurately) calling the Dirty Dozen!

I read, and enjoy, a lot of blog posts with blogger/author interviews, and wanted to put my own spin on that. This will hopefully create something entertaining and informative for you, the reader, while sharing what platform I have with the amazing and talented people who have bravely volunteered to take part. Not all of these questions are easy, but hopefully they will give you an insight into the person on the other side of the screen. Ultimately, blogging is all about making connections. Show your humanity, show your love, and support each other. Because really, what else is there?

First to step up to the plate, as happens so often on my blog, is the amazing, inspirational Annette Rochelle Aben!

The Dirty Dozen

Don’t miss! This weekend…

Want to know one piece of advice that really gets Annette’s goat… or what she’d be grabbing when the zombies come knocking… or her true feelings about rabbits?!…

All will be revealed on Sunday, in a new feature – The Dirty Dozen!

Twelve (ish) questions that will tell you more about #1 bestselling author, radio host, wordsmith and all-round inspiration Annette Rochelle Aben, than any host of more conventional author interviews.

I will be hosting this on my main website – http://www.alistairlanewrites.com/ – rather than here on my blog, so please head over now and sign up for the email alerts. My intention is to post no more than a twice a week on the main site, and I will be using that for longer articles on writing and blogging, along with this interview series. All the poetry and weekly challenges will stay here on the blog. Or…

Hope you can join us. And bring a bottle!
